life at the beach.

i love these photos from life magazine. something about the romance our grandparents & parents had with the seaside seems lost these days.

you can see the full collection at coastal living.


  1. These photo rock!! Last Christmas Mike got me a fabulous photo of 1950s beauty pageant at the Empress Hotel in Asbury. I love, love it.

    I hope you had a beautiful holiday, right down the road. :-) Thank you for bringing "beauty and the beach" to my life through your fabulous blog. HEY -- I'm headed to Country by the Sea in Avon tomorrow to have a poke around...if you're in the 'hood. :-)

  2. I've always been a coastal living mag fan- great collection of photographs.
